MASA Scholarships in Israel

Although Israel is a very advanced country technologically life can be quite hard. In fact, it is probably one of the most advanced in the world. We see this through their many scientific breakthroughs. This is also through the fact that a large number of wildly successful applications were developed there and have become extremely successful. Not least of which is Viber. The difficulty not only comes through the fact that it faces ongoing conflict, but also because in terms of income, it remains a middle-income country, with high-income country prices. As a result, anybody wishing to study there will have challenges in terms of financing themselves without the help of others. Thankfully, there is a lot of help available. One organisation which helps people to study in Israel is MASA Israel. MASA Israel seeks to make it as easy…

Scholarships for Chileans at the University of Queensland

When we think of Chile and Australia, to find commonalities is not the easiest thing to do. There are some links. For instance, both are capitalist economies. Both are highly developed. Something that it quite particular to both, however is their heavy dependence on natural resources. More specifically it is the fact that they are both extractors of minerals from the ground. While there are more details to bee borne on these, Australia is a chief producer of iron, and Chile a producer of copper. They also share a common ocean. This is the Pacific Ocean. That does not mean that they are close geographically, however. They are also getting farther and farther away from one another because of tectonic plate movement. This does not stop the two nations from getting closer to one another in academic terms. This is…

Is there Really a Scholarship for Everything?

If you go through the websites of various educational institutions, you might be led to think tat there truly is a scholarship for everything, and that they are therefore easy money. This is only half true. There are indeed scholarships for virtually anything that you can think of. They are not, however, easy money. This is because a lot of the ones that involve factors out of our control such as being an orphan, widow, or coming from a poor country or background are not usually situations in which we would want to find ourselves. The extra cash is therefore little more than some sort of minor compensation. The rest involve a lot of hard work. These include entering competitions and all sorts of other screening processes. That said, some of the scholarships listed are, quite frankly, easy to obtain…

Should the Wealthy even Bother to Apply for Scholarships?

I could answer this question every easily. Of course they should. Although they may be able to afford to pay for their own studies, if they deserve a scholarship, why should anybody stop them? Why would we want to set a limit on the amount of money a student gets? If they get more, they will probably be able to put it to better use, seeing as they merited it. In many countries, normal government aid is out of the reach of the wealthy, given that they are means tested. This means that one must prove that they cannot afford to pay for everything themselves. As a result, they are discouraged from trying any other sources. This might seem fair on the surface. Most scholarships are means tested, but others are based purely on talent. These are merit-based scholarships. Earning…

Obtaining Scholarships as an Orphan

Being an orphan is not something that is desirable. No matter how many times we might choose to watch Batman or Superman films, two of the most popular super heroes in the world, we know that these are not real people. As an orphan, you are very unlikely to discover that your parents were billionaires who can pay for everything, nor are you to discover that are from an extinct alien race from another planet. While fun to entertain, these ideas are no more than entertaining ideas. Orphans are among those most in need of financial support. They have no family to help them. They also faced very limited opportunities, and were more likely to have less developed social skills due to their position. As a result, obtaining these scholarships will be hard in the first place. Fortunately, there are…
